Litigation support services firm names new CRO, CIO, CSO

Verus LLC, a litigation support services firm based in Princeton, announced Tuesday it has promoted three executives to its C-suite as part of a corporate growth initiative.

The appointments include:

  • Matthew Nissen to chief strategy officer;
  • Lori Todaro to chef resource officer;
  • Scott Heisman to chief integration officer.

“We are growing our C-Suite with an eye toward streamlining our organization and aligning important business functions that will allow Verus to add even greater value for current clients, while also positioning the firm for exponential growth,” Mark Eveland, co-founder and CEO, Verus, said.  “Since our founding, the focus of our corporate culture has always been on continuous innovation, process improvement and ongoing development of our products and services. We are applying those same principles that serve our clients so well to our own business in order to grow a sustainable enterprise that allows our staff and management alike to thrive and contribute to the organization in a holistic way.

“Matt, Lori and Scott are experts in their respective arenas and have already proven their ability to execute as a team. We look forward to their contributions in these new senior executive roles at Verus.”

Nissen will be responsible for the company’s strategic vision, including sales, marketing and customer relationships. Previously, he served as director of finance overseeing Verus’ finance and quality assurance functions.  Prior to that, he held roles at a “Big 4″ CPA firm. He is a certified public accountant in New Jersey and a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accounts and the New Jersey Society of Certified Public Accountants.

Todaro will oversee accounting and finance, human resources, administrative services, facilities management, and quality assurance. Before her appointment, she was director of human resources at the company. Her prior experiences include leadership in the biotechnology sphere.

In his new role, Heisman will be tasked with integrating Verus’ operations, information technology, customer support and analytics team. He previously served as director of operations.

“These promotions are well-deserved and allow us to recognize the unique skills and talent of these individuals,” Eveland said.  “Just as importantly, however, by building out a more robust C-suite with executives who have oversight across key areas of our business, Verus will provide an even higher and more integrated level of service and innovative solutions to our growing client base.”
